A BRITISH EMBASSY'S TABLE WARE. We have it on the authority of an American paper that the Presidential mansion cannot make so brave a show in regard to table ware as her Majesty's Embassy at Washington. When Lord Pauncefote brings forth his plate chest and spreads a state banquet the magnificence of the White House silver, china, and glass ware sinks into insignificance. The silver service which the British Government has fur- nished for its representative there is valued at 50,000 dollars. The weight of the precious metal is upward of a thousand pounds, but its chief value lies in the exquisite workmanship. The regal arms of England and beautifully-traced flowers, birds, and vines set off every article. The centrepiece is a marvel of the jeweller's art. Connoisseurs have de- clared that this centrepiece is the handsomest orna- ment of its kind to be found outside the houses of kings. The china of the British Embassy compares with the silver in value and delicacy, and the glass is equally rare and costly. The total value of the table ware is upwards of 75,OOOdol.
